When you host an exchange student with AFS, you gain a new son or daughter. Students arrive in August to start high school and then reluctantly say goodbye the following June when its time to go back home.
Here in AFS Greater Phoenix, we are always looking for families who can open up their home and hearts to an international teen. We look for families who can provide the fundamentals: 3 meals a day, a bed, transportation to and from a nearby school, and to be treated like a member of the family. Our host families are big and small, active or chill, 2 parents or 1, gay or straight, but what they share is respect for each other, communications, love and humor. If you would like more information about hosting an AFS student in Phoenix, please contact one of our local representatives below.
